Description

"It is delectably expressed on the nose showing dark cherry, cranberry, game, cedar and dark mushroom characters, followed by a concentrated palate that is supple and silky. The wine offers excellent fruit purity as well as stylish savoury complexity, wonderfully framed by polished tannins. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2018

"Even, dark ruby-red colour with some light purple hues, lighter on the rim.  The nose is elegant and refined in expression with seamlessly interwoven aromas of dark-red berry fruits, and a little raspberry liqueur, melded with subtle notes of dark herbs and spices, unveiling red floral nuances.  Medium-bodied, the palate is fine in presentation with flavours of dark red berry fruits, savoury raspberries with notes of dark herbs and spices with fragrant red florals.  The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety with fine-grained tannin extraction, and subtle, integrated acid freshness. The flavours show good linearity and carries to a sustained finish.  This is an elegant and refined Pinot Noir with raspberries, herbs and spices on a smooth-flowing palate.  Match with poultry and pork, lamb and beef over the next 5+ years.  Fruit from a single site in the Upper Wairau Valley, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.2% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 15% new oak" Raymond Chan, Oct 2018

Vibrant aromas of dark cherry fill the glass, with a suggestion of spice and wild herbs.  Fine drying tannins and the perfect balance of fruit sweetness give this Pinot Noir excellent palate weight and a seductively silken texture.

A showcase of the best of Marlborough wines with an emphasis on the Upper Awatere Valley, taking bold steps to stand out from the crowd. Whether it be cutting edge winemaking, dynamic packaging or market driven initiatives, they are not afraid to show what can be done!
